"Fantastic news for the many thousands of runners and everyone else involved in the NN Marathon Rotterdam." That is the first reaction of Mario Kadiks, CEO of organizer Golazo, to the announcement by Mayor Aboutaleb, in which he says that the 40th edition of #demooiste on Sunday 24 October can take place ‘most likely’.
“We all hoped for this. I've always remained optimistic, but still. After the cabinet decision to abolish the one and a half meter rule as of September 25, this is a new, important step," said Kadiks about the intention of the Rotterdam mayor to grant a permit for the event.
Aboutaleb announced the news this morning during a city council meeting. Barring unforeseen circumstances, nothing stands in the way of the 40th NN Marathon Rotterdam. “We are now going to work out the details together with the municipality that can guarantee a beautiful and safe edition. This is possible with a few adjustments. Further announcements about this can be expected at a later time," the organizer announced.
Kadiks: ,,We are happy that there is positive news. Just like us, the runners had to wait a long time for it, but now we can say: It's going to happen!"
